Microstrategy Plans to purchase $650 million worth of BTC again after closing an offering of 0.750% convertible senior notes as we are reading more in today’s Bitcoin news.
The NASDAQ-listed company surpassed its previous plans to offer $400 million in convertible notes but the company announced today that raised an additional $650 million via senior convertible notes that offer and asserted that proceeds will be invested in BTC. The official announcement read:
“The aggregate principal amount of the notes sold in the offering was $650 million, which includes notes issuable pursuant to an option to purchase.”
The company failed to disclose the names of the participants in the purchase and said that the notes were sold in one private offering to qualified institutional buyers. The notes represent unsecured senior obligations of the bear interest rate of the company of 0.750% per annum. They are payable semi-annually twice, in June and December of each year starting in 2021. The notes will mature on December 15th, 2025 unless redeemed, repurchased, or converted in accordance with the terms.
It’s worth noting that the holders of these notes could require Microstrategy to repurchase them if a fundamental change is to happen. The repurchase price will be equal to 100% of the principal amount of notes. The net proceeds from the sale will hit $635 million after deducting the initial purchaser’s commissions and discounts. Microstrategy plans to purchase more BTC in accordance with the company’s updated Treasury Reserve Policy. If the company proceeds with buying more BTC, the total investment will rise above $1 billion after the huge purchases earlier this year.
Initially, we reported that world’s biggest publicly traded business intelligence company MicroStrategy announces the plans for a new securities offering in order to invest the $400 million of the offerings into bitcoin. The company revealed the plans to issue $400 million in convertible senior notes which is a debt security that can be converted into the company’s shares as the announcement stated:
“Microstrategy intends to invest the net proceeds from the sale of the notes in Bitcoin.”
At the current price, the $400 million will increase the company’s holdings by 20,833 which will bring the company’s total crypto stash to about 62,000 BTC. Microstrategy will pay semi-annual interests to note-holders until December 2025 as the company reserved the right to redeem the notes for cash, starting from December 20, 2023.
